I Was Bellatrix LeStrange
Last month, on July 21st, aka Book 7 Day, I attended both the Scholastic "Harry Potter Place" Street Fair and the Barnes and Noble Harry Potter Costume Party in Union Square.
(That would be New York City, for those of you not in the know). I was dressed in a fabulous Bellatrix LeStrange costume, custom-made by fabulous fanstasy-costume designer Susan McLoughlin, and I was accompanied by my dog, Chloe, dressed (quite against her will) in a Hogwarts scarf.
Because some dude accio'd my camera, I do not have any images of myself in this costume. But hundreds of people took my picture. So I wanted to spread the word: if you know someone who knows someone who went to the Scholastic and/or Barnes and Noble NYC costume party, and if this someone happened to have taken a digital photo of a woman dressed as Bellatrix LeStrange, please do pass on my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
